Country of Origin: USA

Raw material source: Glucose (sugar)

Manufacture: L-ascorbic acid is produced synthetically in a multi-step process where D-glucose is hydrogenized to D-sorbitol and then oxidized to L-sorbose. Sorbose is then processed to 2-keto-L-gluconic acid and further to l-ascorbic acid through a fermentation process. L-ascorbic acid is then dissolved and stabilized in an elastomer dispersion consisting of cyclopentasiloxane, polysilicone-11, and ethylhexyl hydroxystearate.
